23 Sep Guatemala – Dave and Debbie Amsler
Debbie and I want to personally thank the youth and leaders who invested so much into Speed the Light with their purchase of a media equipment package that was delivered by Doug Sayers and the PennDel AIM team just last week (July 2010). We immediately put the equipment into use. The first program we did in a public school in Los Amates, Guatemala we saw 197 students respond to a salvation invitation!
We saw the favor of God help us get the equipment into the country. The airline waved the normal overweight and oversize fees that would have been close to $2,000. Then, once in country we were only charged $2.50 customs fee that could have been several hundreds of dollars more.
It was such a joy not only to receive these precious tools, but to have them delivered by students who helped raise some of those funds. We are so grateful to everyone who had a part in this gift to the children and youth of Guatemala.
In the last few days we presented our ministry to more than 3,000 students in 10 presentations and saw well over 600 pray to receive Christ. We have nearly a dozen more programs in the next 14 days with an anticipated audience of over 4,000 more students.
We are now doing the prep work for Year of the Child in 2011 with an emphasis we are calling “For the Love of the Children.” We expect to touch between 25,000 to 50,000 children and youth next year as well as host evangelism leadership training events around the country to 500-1000 student leaders.
As a former District Youth Director it is such an honor to be on this side of Speed the Light. I wept when I received the keys to my STL truck and now I weep again thinking about the sacrifice of leaders and students who support missionaries with ministry tools to impact the world with the gospel.
Thank you for your passion for world evangelism and your investment in our work in Guatemala.
